Upcycled Utensil Cans



These Upcycled Utensil Cans from Camilla Starks are great for organizing your kitchen utensils.  Made from old formula cans, this craft is thrifty and useful.  You could also use these upcycled canisters to store art supplies, jewelry, pens, and much more.

Upcycled Utensil Cans


  • Costco Formula Cans
  • Fabric of Choice
  • Glue
  • Fray Check



  1. Measure cans and buy enough fabric for the amount of cans you are covering.
  2. Trim fabric to the correct amount (I used my rotary cutter and cutting mat.)
  3. Fray check your fabric because it will fray and that is not very clean and sleek looking. Let Dry.
  4. Once fray check is dry you can start gluing the fabric on the cans. I used E6000 glue but simply because I wanted to see how it would do. I thought maybe using hot glue might be bumpy under the fabric. The E6000 worked well. I let dry overnight.

Fabric in the kitchen would get dirty and couldn't be cleaned. Try washable wallpaper or shelf paper or craft paper.
